extase hand-carved stamps

by Grace Bonney

This weekend I met up with two of my favorite friends to check out the MoCCA Festival (Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art) at the Armory. I’ve never been to a comic book festival, so I had fun taking it all in. During one of our booth chats I ended up discussing wood-block and linocut prints, and I was reminded of how much I wanted to get back into making stamps on my own. I took a stamping class at Lena Corwin’s years ago and really enjoyed carving into lino blocks over and over. So I was happy to see these cute hand-carved stamps from Extase on Etsy. Each is mounted on a piece of salvaged wood and comes in recycled packaging. As much as I love making my own stamps, having an option like this is great if you’re looking for something fun to decorate with and don’t want to break out a set of carving tools. The Extase shop has a ton of great options, which you can see and shop right here (prices range from $9–$13 each). xo, grace
